[GB] Battlefield 3 Can Take Up to 256 Players - Page 3

Adding that many players outside the design specs will certainly break all kinds of game features. Not that it couldn't be fun, but it would not be BF3.
If it's only an option for non-ranked dedicated servers then who is it hurting? If you don't like it _don't_play_on_their_server_. I'd like to see this genre go forward, try something innovative. DICE could consider enabling 128 players a field test for future games.

Anything over 20+ people isn't really that much fun.
It's TURBO TIME!

1. Make rank servers apply to 64 player map sizes and below.
2. Give dedicated servers ability to go to 128 without rank. Let players decide if it's fun or not. FPS games are a dime a dozen, do something different DICE.

I take it the people who care about balance are interested in rank servers only.
Brilliant. 64-player ranked and 128+ player unranked matches. The latter would be nice for just pure random fun, or actually practicing and honing skills without worrying about the stats.

This is just developer waffle. At the graphics and technicality of the game I dont think it can go above 128.
Anything can "take up to 256 players", but whether it works or runs any good is a different story.

That is like saying "a nvidia 7600gt can run BF3", yeah it can.......at 5FPS

Eh, maybe at maximum graphics we might not be able to play 60 FPS+ at 256 players on one map, but I highly doubt running the game on medium would stress even today's cards.

Not to mention FPS is determined by what's in FoV. It's not like all 256 players are gonna be on your screen at once (the map and air space would be huge). At most maybe 30.

Imagine 256 players all whining at once because of lag.

I hope they do this. I remember the days of Joint Operations. That game was soooo fun. Buggy but fun. Especially with the International Conflict tournaments every sunday. Was 150 players on one big o' map.

Makes me wonder if that game still has the Orange Bowl server.

Oh god...please not another MAG.

64 player will get hectic enough...unless we're talking about maps like Wake Island (with another Wake Island connected to it)

Ya know, minus the ACTUAL risks of death, killing someone, being severely injured with crap food and downtime that makes some go literally insane. Sure, other than all of that, it's as close to real warfare as possible...
